We’ve got a plethora of top experts coming along to share their thoughts with you, including renowned expert Daniel Steinberg as our keynote (as well as giving an exclusive introductory workshop), Martin Pilkington from M Cubed Software on the internals of Autolayout, and Simon Whitaker from Black Pixel on UIkit dynamics and animation.

iOS Hackathon

You'll be treated to four days of pure iOS: two days of practical and inspiring conference talks and labs, followed by a hackathon weekend with lightning talks from the community and great prizes from our sponsors for the best designs and ideas. You'll be able to meet and collaborate with 100+ other devs, and make something new and unique!
